And the reason why........it seems that i am the rotten person that ordered them to come home after two weeks at "the bestest greatest place ever". We had, in no particular order,great weather,excellent service,unbelievable Rain Fortress,massive slides,wonderful location,beautiful room, and an experience to look back on (in the winter!) with the warmest memories.
Since we arrived back,ive checked on Tripadvisor,and have noticed some negative reviews,for exactly the same time we were there, August/Sept......and i can only conclude that the reviews say more about the reviewers,than they do about the place being reviewed !!!!!!!
I must be very careful,because this horse im on is VERY high.....but i heard a few people complain about....the view ? the service ? the beach ? etc etc......AMAZING !!!!!
The clue to this resort is hidden, enigmatically, in its title WATERWORLD, .....and if you can work out what that probably implies,and you look at the pictures of the place,you will, perhaps.....sit back and ponder.....and come to the conclusion that if you are part of an energetic (ish) young (ish) family, that can mix having a wild blast for half the day.....relaxing by any of the numerous pools....then crossing over to the beach to snorkel.....dinner at the Palace next door......drinks.....entertainment......flop into bed.....with everything feeling safe.....then this is the place for you.....it certainly was great for us.
One big problem......next year......how to beat it !!!!!!!!!!
PS....The weather,two solid weeks of blue sky,the sun,it DOES exist,ive felt it.....
